Breakfast Idea: A Healthy Way to Eat Waffles!

 A few months ago I bought a Good Housekeeping magazine with Dr. Oz on the front cover boasting a weight loss meal plan. Yes, I bought it. My muffin top told me to. We followed the meal plan for about three weeks and honestly, I did drop weight quite quickly. But it was A LOT of work because every single meal took a decent amount of effort and prep and I had to cook the kids separate meals most days. This breakfast suggestion, however, was quick and easy and very good!

At first I thought it sounded strange but after I tried it I was hooked. I still eat it regularly because I know it's a nice healthy option and I don't feel like I'm starving afterwards. Are you ready to hear it?

Ricotta and Date Waffles:
Two whole grain waffles
2 tbs part-skim ricotta
3 chopped dates
1 tsp honey

OK, don't run away screaming. Try it! I was delightfully surprised with how tasty it was! You can make your own waffles or just go the easy route and buy the frozen ones. I bought dried dates and chop them up as I need them. 

The best part about this breakfast is that it is only about 300 calories! Let me know if you try it and if you like it!

  1. I think that sounds really good!

  2. i always eat waffles and pancakes with plain yogurt instead of maple syrup (sign of a nonnative Vermonter!). i think ricotta sounds like a lovely alternative.

  3. Yogurt sounds good too though, I'll have to try it!


Every single comment is like a little present I anticipate as I unwrap it. Thanks for making my day!
